    Video Review & Installation

    Hey guys. Today I'm here with the Fox Performance 2.0 Series reservoir shocks fitting all 2007 to 2018 JK Wranglers with 1.5 to 3.5 inches of lift. This is gonna be a perfect option for you guys out there looking to improve your handling with a long lasting and high-quality reservoir shock. These will be a great option if you're out racing with your Jeep or if you're just looking for a shock that can handle being worked all of the time. So these are gonna be a great option if you're looking to pair this with a lift that does not already come with shocks or are just looking to refresh all four corners of your Jeep since this does come with the front and the back shocks. At the moment, these are gonna be just shy of $900 which is actually gonna be your most affordable option for a four pack of reservoir shocks. Fox is a very big name in the suspension industry and I think that what you're getting with these it's definitely worth the price. Plus you're getting a one year warranty so you get a little bit of peace of mind in your investment. Install is gonna be a two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. However, it's nothing that you can't do in your driveway with some hand tools and a couple of hours. So speaking of the install, let's jump into that now. The tools that we use for this install are a three-eighths inch drive ratchet, a 16-millimeter ratcheting wrench, a 16-millimeter open-ended or a box wrench, a three-fourths inch ratcheting wrench or a 19-millimeter ratcheting wrench, an 18-millimeter open-ended or box wrench, a pry bar, an extension, a 6 millimeter Allen key, a 16-millimeter swivel, an 18-millimeter swivel, a 19-millimeter deep socket, an 18-millimeter deep socket, and an impact gun. So our first step for replacing our shocks is to get our Jeep up in the air and take our wheels and tires off. So I'm gonna use a 19-millimeter sockets to get off our lugs and take off our wheels and tires. So after our wheels and tires are off we can take a couple pole jacks to support our axle. So now that our axle is supported, we can remove our top shock bolt with a 16-millimeter ratcheting wrench and a 16 millimeter open-ended or box wrench. So, there is a chance that this car pole can snap, but the new shocks come with hardware so that shouldn't be a problem. So, now we can remove the bottom shock bolt using an 18-millimeter wrench and an 18-millimeter socket. I am using a swivel here because of clearance reasons, but if you have a ratchet and a regular socket that should work just fine. So after that bolt is out we can fully remove our shock. After the one shock's out you can just repeat the process on the other side. So the big difference that we see while we put the two shocks on the table is that our new Fox shock has a reservoir compared to our standard factory monotube shock. So a reservoir shock is gonna increase your valving and improve your dampening over time because there's more oil inside the reservoir shock and it's gonna have better oil displacements since you have some extra room to work with because of the reservoir. So compared to a monotube shock, whether it be hydraulic or gas charged, everything's happening in one chamber. So now with a reservoir shock, you have some extra room to work with since there's more oil. So the gas and the oil will be separated by an internal floating piston. So that's gonna be really good at reducing shock fade over time from cavitation or foaming forming inside the shock when it's worked really hard like bumps at fast speeds or excessive washboards. So this is gonna be perfect for anybody who does any desert racing, any dune racing, and just any fast pace Jeeping. So our new shock is also gonna be a lot more durable on the outside compared to our factory shock. And it has a five-eighth inch chrome plated alloy steel shaft that is heat treated. So this is gonna be able to take a hit on the trail compared to our factory shock that might not hold up to any of that. You're also getting a couple of little goodies around the shock that are gonna increase the durability and the lifespan. So you have a stainless steel graded line here connected to your reservoir that's gonna protect your oil from any damage. You have your nitrile bushings for noise reduction and a longer lifespan over time. And you also get a clamp with this to clamp your reservoir to your shock body so it's not bouncing around on the trail. So enough about our stock shocks, let's install our new ones. So now we're ready to install our new shock. I would recommend that you keep the clamp off so you can maneuver the shock around and then you can clamp everything on at the end. So you will have to go behind this brake line to get everything lined up. So once the shaft is in the top hole, you can maneuver the shock body around just like our stock shock. So this fitting is not touching the shock perch. So before we secure down the shock with the bottom bolt we do have to make sure that there's enough room for hardware up top. So we're gonna install our hardware starting with the bushing and then the washer and then the nut. So before we tighten the hardware up top we need to insert the bottom bolt to keep our shock body in place. Now we can install our bottom shock bolt using the factory hardware on the bottom, and we'll be using the new hardware on the top bolt. So now we tighten down the top nut with a three-fourths inch ratcheting wrench or 19-millimeter ratcheting wrench. So now we can install our clamp to clamp down our reservoir to our shock body, making sure it's out of the way of any moving parts like our spring on the left-hand side and our brake line here on the right. And your line will give you some resilience to get it up and out of the way. And you can tighten down the Allen bolt with a 6-millimeter Allen key. So now we can repeat the process on the other side. So after we're done buttoning up the front, we're gonna take our pole jacks and support our rear axle in order to take out our rear shocks. So I'm gonna use an 18-millimeter wrench and an 18-millimeter socket and remove this bottom bolt. So now we can remove the top two bolts that are holding in our shock using a 16-millimeter socket. I'm using a swivel and an extension because they are up there and I need to get around the rear sway bar. So once all of those three bolts are out we can remove our shock. It might take a little bit of a wiggle to get it out but it should just come right out. A pry bar can help you get it unstuck and then you can fully remove your shock. So now we can repeat the process on the other side. You might have to play around with the height of the axle to get the bolt lined up enough to come out. But it should come out pretty easy. So the back ones are pretty stiff in here. So we're just gonna take our pry bar again and wedge it out. So after our rear shocks are out we're gonna lower our pole jacks so we can fit in our new and longer shocks. So this is gonna help our axle droop a little bit so we can line everything up. So now we're ready to install our shock. So, you can let the shock sit there while you thread in your top bolts first, then we can thread in the bottom bolt and tighten everything down at the end. So once those are threaded in we can insert our bottom bolt. Then we can go ahead and tighten everything down. So, just like the front shocks, we're going to attach our clamp onto our rear shocks so our reservoir is not just floating around. You might have to loosen the bolt a little bit to get it around the reservoir and the shock body. After it's in place you can tighten it down with a 6-millimeter Allen key. Now we can repeat the process again on the other side. So after everything is tightened up in the rear we can remove our pole jacks and put on our wheels and tires. So that wraps it up for my review and install. If you're the owner of an '07 to '18 JK with a 1.5 to 3.5-inch lift, if you're looking for a quality and affordable reservoir shock you can find the Fox 2.0 Performance Series reservoir shocks right here at extremeterrain.com.

    Description

    Improves Handling, Control. When your 2007-2018 Jeep Wrangler has a 1.5" to 3.5" suspension lift and you often use it hard, the shocks will tend to heat up rapidly. This set of FOX 2.0 Performance Series Reservoir Shocks will go the extra mile to remain cool and fade-free. Each of the shocks feature an external reservoir, created to handle a larger volume of oil and nitrogen. This enhances performance during heavy use situations and in any climate. If you're looking for an affordable, hassle free way to enhance your lifted Jeep suspension, you can't go wrong with FOX.

    Quality Built. The body of these Reservoir 2.0 Performance Series Shocks are made of 6061-T6 aluminum that is CNC machined and hard anodized. The shaft is made out of 5/8ā€ alloy steel and is hard chrome-plated as well as heat-treated. With a clear anodized finish, this front and rear shock system proves strong and reliable.

    Smartly Designed. One of the reasons this shock can withstand intense challenges is because of its external, high-capacity reservoir. The design also keeps nitrogen and oil isolated so that you reach maximum damping and can maintain your speeds at all temperatures. Valved specifically for your Wrangler JK, these Performance 2.0 Shocks designed by FOX will be a smart investment for fun both on and off-road.

    Application. The FOX 2.0 Performance Series Reservoir Front and Rear Shocks are designed to fit all 2007-2018 Jeep Wrangler JKs equipped with a 1.5 to 3.5" Lift Kit.
